The main job of audio-visual recording studio is to record and make music for old and new Tibetan songs. Since its establishment, many folk songs and opera arias have been recorded and archived. Almost old recorded materials are in the formats of audio and video cassettes. These analogue collections are being digitized and archived as well. These archival materials have been carefully documented.
A climate-controlled room where humidity level checks automatically for keeping the materials safe will be arranged in future. The current recording studio’s interior acoustic treatment was funded by The Dalai Lama Trust, Dharamshala. The structure was constructed with contributions from The Tibet Fund, New York, Shelly and Donald Rubin Foundation, USA, Dr. Victoria Sujata, USA, German Aid Tibetans, Germany, Dechen Shak-Dagsey, Dewa Che Foundation, Switzerland, Dreams for Tibet, Seatle, USA.The existing audio-visual equipment have been purchased with funds provided by USAID.
